Skipping nickels

from Scratch the Dragon at 29:05.4

Getting really old!

Derived from the Age Pickup-Graph, stating the pickup-ratio while aging:
0 - 15 years old: you will pick up any change
15 - 40: you will pick up any dime, but will ignore pennies
40 - 75: you will not pick up any single quarters, but will pick up 2 quarters depending on how far one is from the other
< 90: you will always pick up silver dollars or dollar bills
> 115: you won't even bother to pick up a hundred dollar bill

It sounds like they say "skippin nickels" in the CCR song "Down On The Corner."
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Skippin' Nickels, tap your feet
